Philippe Mangeot co-author of the French film "Beats Per Minute" is in Australia [fr]

Thanks to the support of the Embassy of France in Australia and the Institut Français, Philippe Mangeot co-author of "Beats Per Minute" will be here to present the film at the Alliance Française French Film Festival and to give two talks, one at Carriageworks in Sydney as part of the Mardi Gras Festival and the other at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne.

Philippe Mangeot co-wrote the 2017 Cannes Grand Jury Prize-winning film BPM, which will screen in the inaugural LGBTQI program at the 2018 Alliance Francaise French Film Festival. He was a member and former president of Act Up-Paris, a militant association fighting against AIDs, and in 1997 he founded the journal Vacarme, where he was editor-in-chief 1999-2004. He is now a member of its editorial board. He also regularly contributes to Cahiers du cinéma.

JPEG We are thrilled to have him in Australia for this fabulous film and for the two talks he will give both about the film and its surrounding theme, activism and AIDS.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn more about this current topic in the world today and to gain insight on AIDS activism in Paris in the 1990.
